I recently accidentally ordered the wrong ammo from Midway. I had intended to get Black Hills 52 gr Match HP ammo, but got the same round moly coated instead. I shoot a Bushmaster Varminter and am concerned about using the ammo in that I've read before that you have to treat Moly Coated ammo differently. Can I shoot the 100 rounds I bought through my rifle and then switch back to standard copper jackets without harmful side effects? Is there any special procedure or cleaning technique I should use? If I shoot this then switch back, wil I have to do anything special?
Thanks in advance for any info.
Yes, you can shoot it without bad things happening.
Clean your barrel well before shooting it. Clean your barrel well after shooting it.
I use Butch's Bore Shine and Kroil. Butch's gets the copper out; Kroil gets what is left. Kroil takes about a day to float the really small carbon and moly stuff out.
I switch from copper to moly without incident.
